Josh Gaskamp

Technical Consultation Manager

Gaskamp serves as a wildlife and range consultant in the producer relations program.

He joined the Noble Research Institute in 2007 after working as a hunting guide and gun-dog trainer on the King Ranch.

His areas of interest include wildlife habitat improvement, range management, white-tailed deer management, fisheries management, plant identification, prescribed fire and feral hog impacts. Gaskamp's research on drop-nets as a potential tool for feral hog control led him to develop the BoarBusterâ„¢ suspended corral trap.

Gaskamp grew up in Brenham, Texas.
